On November 12, the Turtle Island Quartet will perform in Dimnent Memorial Chapel at 7:30 p.m. as part of this year’s Great Performance Series. This two-time Grammy Award winning ensemble last came to Hope in 1992 and will be performing here again as part of their 25th anniversary season.
The Turtle Island Quartet has been featured on the Today Show, NPR, and in People magazine. Recordings of their music, including their latest, the Jimi Hendrix tribute album “Have You Ever Been…?,” are available at Van Wylen Library in the Great Performance Series section on the first floor. Samples of their music are also available on the Great Performance Series website and in the music database Naxos (search for Turtle Island Quartet).
